Perks Of Buying Used Cars

Perhaps it's time for a newer vehicle. Maybe your old ride is on its last leg, or you're just wanting something with more features. You've most likely heard a lot of suggestions to purchase a new vehicle. While there are some significant benefits to buying new, there are also great, unique perks to purchasing a used car, truck or SUV.

We've listed a few of the perks of buying a used vehicle below. Every situation is different, but hopefully you'll find this information useful when it comes time to make your decision.

Affordability

Affordability

One of the biggest benefits of buying used, we think, is affordability. Because a used car is objectively cheaper than its newer equivalent, your down payment and monthly payments will be much lower than they would be on a new car. It's also easier to pay for a used car in one lump sum, which means you wouldn't have to worry about monthly payments at all. Purchasing used also means you can get more bang for your buck (in other words, more features for less money), or you can get a much nicer model than what you had before.

Lower Insurance Rates

On top of lower monthly payments, you'll find that it's much more affordable to protect your used vehicle. Insurance rates are calculated according to the value of your car, so since used cars cost less, their insurance does, too.

Slower Depreciation

Slower Depreciation

Depreciation hits new cars hard, unlike used cars. This means that a new car loses much of its original value within the first few years of ownership. While depreciation happens constantly, it does tend to level out more after the first few years. A used car, on the other hand, will likely have already gone through this steep decline in value by the time you buy it, meaning you can pay a great deal less.

Options

Models get discontinued quite often in the automotive industry, sometimes even ones that we may love. When you buy used, that becomes less of an issue. Additionally, you can find cars with different trims or features that may no longer be available on those models. Buying used is all about options, because you aren't limited by the features and trims of a single year.
